Saturday 15th June
Breaking news today is that the dreaded midge was out in numbers today… I believe that Peter Bartlett who lives over at Glenegedale had a fan blowing in his polytunnel trying to keep the midges away while he was trying to sell plants today. I remember being told by a good friend several years ago that if the wind is blowing at more than 4 mph then you get rid of the midge, so perhaps that is what Peter was trying to “stimulate” by using a fan blowing, and it was not that Peter was feeling cold…
